Overtones of Sweet Vinegar
1 12 oz Gin (gin infused with olive brine (see Notes))
12 oz Crème de Violette
34 oz Grapefruit juice (Ruby Red)
18 oz Sherry vinegar (Columela Solera 30 Reserva)
12 oz Lavender syrup
1   Egg white
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a frozen coupe glass. Garnish with a tiny sprinkle of ground cinnamon.
1. The Gin. I bought a jar of Moroccan-style olives, poured out all of the brine, refilled the jar with gin, and let it "steep" for at least a week. 2. The Grapefruit. This particular grapefruit has a tiny bit of sweetness. 3. The sherry vinegar. I found this particular "high performance" version a few years ago and it really makes a difference. You don't want "vinegar." Rather, you want a very flavorful Sherry vinegar.
